Director Bio: Marco Gadge realized several short film projects that were successful at over 150 film festivals worldwide and won several awards. Juliet must die is his first feature film. He regularly directs television productions.
How is it possible that an arabic young woman gets lost in a drama school? Just by accident. Nobody would think that a headscarf would turn up in such a temple of art. The culture clash is inevitable. So every audition is kind of a soul striptease for the applicants. But timidly she drops her veil and opens herself to the others and the world. In those restless times, we need new approaches and empathy. The problems of time inevitably lie ahead of us. How we treat them and which solutions we chose, is up to us.
